Book Review: Layers Deep

Layers Deep (Layers Trilogy #1) by Lacey Silks: He needs her to save a friend.
She needs him to plan her revenge.
Their pasts scar them Layers Deep.
Their passion distracts them...
...and distractions can be fatal.

Tristan Cross is battling emotional demons from the past. He lives in a world where trust is earned, loyalties are tested, and love is impossible. That is, until he meets Allie Green. She’s the only woman who can help him find a kidnapped friend and to top it off, she captivates him. All he has to do now is persuade her to work for Cross Enterprises, his top investigations firm.

Allie Green is a rookie cop seeking revenge and she’s willing to sell her soul to get it. With an opportunity to use Tristan Cross's resources Allie calculates her time for payback. As vengeance boils her blood she can’t keep her mind off her new boss and Allie finds it difficult to keep her employment professional. With the mouth watering Tristan Cross distracting her, she struggles to prioritize an undercover job she’s been assigned and her hunger for revenge.

And when you’re ready to give up your life to save someone else, distractions can be fatal.

Note: This book is the first part of a Trilogy that is designed to be read in order. Tristan and Allie will get their happy ending but not until book 2 and 3. This book contains a cliff hanger ending you will not expect. A prequel to the series which can be read alone is Dazzled by Silver.

Warning: This title contains erotic situations, and graphic language. Intended for adult audience 18+.

TeriLyn's thoughts: **Received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

Layers Deep is between 3.5 to 4 Hearts for me. The story is intriguing. The writing is interesting and different from other books I've been reading. The author is very concise in her writing; not much is a mystery and you're not kept waiting in suspense until the end. The plot starts off slow in the beginning but really picks up through the middle. The book is on the shorter side, I was able to finish it in one short sitting. The writing flows easily enough moving from event to event seamlessly. Allie and Tristan are interesting characters, each tainted by their past. Allie meets Tristan very early on and their relationship progresses from there. Allie's seeking revenge and Tristan is on a life-saving mission and needs her help. The only mystery throughout the whole story is whether or not Allie and Tristan's relationship will withstand once the mission is completed. We are not kept in the dark about the revenge Allie's seeking for very long. Tristan's story was a bit confusing a first because while we learn what happened we don't learn why. Tristan's brother is a secondary character and his story confused me. The connection between he and Tristan's pasts is strange to me because I think there is more to the story that we don't know. There is a big cliffhanger at the end of this book that raises many questions. Overall, it was a good read and I'm definitely intrigued enough to want the second book right now.
